Remember When for the week of 5/22/19

100 YEARS AGO … 1919

The third wave of influenza which ravaged Crescent Mills seems to have subsided. Several very severe cases were reported but none proved fatal. At present, there is not a single case in the town.

50 YEARS AGO … 1969

A 16 page first ever edition of the spring-summer Vacation Guide of Plumas County’s Feather River Wonderland, a special supplement produced and distributed by Feather Publishing, will be included in this week’s newspapers. It is sure to be a great resource that is included in the weekly newspaper’s cost of ten cents.

25 YEARS AGO … 1994

After months of planning, the Feather Publishing staff will begin compiling a totally local telephone book that will cover and include all of Plumas and Lassen Counties. Called the Plumas-Lassen Connection, this unique directory will be distributed free of charge to the bi-county area. The new book, measuring 6 3/4 inches, will be distributed next year for the first time.

10 YEARS AGO … 2009

Thanks to a grant from the Libri Foundation, Plumas County libraries received $1,500 in funds that has resulted in the purchase of over 90 new storybooks to be added to the children’s/youth section of all Plumas libraries.

Note: items included in the weekly Remember When column are taken from our bound newspaper archives and represent writing styles of that particular period. The spelling and grammar are not edited, so the copy is presented as it actually appeared in the original newspaper.
